ASUS details its next-gen ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme motherboard
AMD has officially announced its next-gen AM5 platform, which will support both DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 technologies... with ASUS unveiling its monster new ROG Crosshair X670E motherboard.
The new ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E motherboard is the new flagship X670E motherboard from ASUS, with both PCIe 5.0 SSD and GPU support. PCIe 5.0 will be standard on X670, but some of the X670E motherboards -- like the ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E -- support both PCIe 5.0 SSDs and GPUs, not just one or the other.
ASUS has included everything including the kitchen sink with its new ROG Crosshair X670E, but that's no surprise for the upper echelons of the ROG enthusiast motherboards. ASUS includes next-gen USB 4 connectivity, 10GbE networking, a ROG PCIe 5.0 M.2 card, and a ROG GEN-Z.2 card.

MSI's beast X670E CARBON motherboard teased, +more X670E boards
MSI's next-gen X670E and X670 series motherboards have just been teased ahead of Computex 2022, with the introduction of the MSI X670E GODLIKE, X670E ACE, X670E CARBON WIFI, and X670-P WIFI.
The beast new MSI X670E CARBON motherboard looks amazing, with the team at MSI tweaking the board enough to give it a slick new look, and underneath we have a PCIe 5.0-capable SSD slot and what should be a next-gen PCIe 5.0 x16 connector.
It seems MSI is tapping the higher-end X670E chipset from AMD for its flagship new motherboards, while the lower-end of its stack uses the X670 chipset: the MSI X670-P WIFI. MSI's new X670E CARBON motherboard reportedly has a beefy 90A power delivery, while the PRO X670-P WIFI has 80A of power delivery.

GIGABYTE confirms X670 AORUS + AERO motherboards tease comes this week
The leaks on next-gen X670 motherboards isn't stopping, now it's time for GIGABYTE officially confirming its upcoming AMD X670 motherboards, ready for the world of Zen 4 processors later this year.
Computex 2022 kicks off tomorrow, with GIGABYTE confirming their upcoming "Power of Computing" event will see the company show off their next-gen AMD X670-based motherboards. We are expecting to see GIGABYTE's upcoming X670 AORUS Xtreme, X670 AORUS Master, X670 AORUS Pro AX, and X670 AERO D series motherboards.
GIGABYTE did confirm that their flagship X670 AORUS Xtreme motherboard will be using the "standard" X670 chipset, and not the purported X670E chipset that will offer PCIe 5.0 for both the GPU and SSD -- where some boards are only doing one, and not both. DDR5 will be a standard, however.

GIGABYTE goes ninja, Project Stealth PC has hidden power connectors
GIGABYTE has partnered up with MAINGEAR for some beautiful new customized PC components, with a custom motherboard, graphics card, and case that makes building a PC simpler than ever.
The new AORUS Project Stealth computer assembly kit is self-explanatory, a new kit with the custom components while there's also the MAINGEAR Stealth custom gaming PCs that will be offered. GIGABYTE and MAINGEAR are offering regular ATX-compatible components, with awesome non-propietary connectors.
We have a custom motherboard, custom graphics card, and custom case -- all made to make the cables disappear from sight. It makes the PC look super-clean, and makes installation and building the PC very easy. We're talking about PCIe power connectors, PSU connectors, USB and front panel headers... all beyond easy to install, and once installed: invisible.

ASUS X670 Prime: new rumor suggests interesting dual-chipset PCB
AMD has a big week ahead of itself, with the next-gen X670 chipset launching packing both PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 technologies... and ASUS... well, they have an interesting dual-chipset board being teased.
In a new leak we're getting to see the purported ASUS X670 Prime motherboard through a PCB diagram, with 4 x DDR5 memory slots and a single PCIe 5.0 x16 slot. ASUS is using a 14-phase VRM design. But at the bottom, we've got two chipsets -- ASUS isn't the first and won't be the last -- but we can expect next-gen high-end X670/E motherboards to be insane.
AMD's new AM5 socket uses an LGA1718 socket, supporting both DDR5 + PCIe 5.0 but also AMD's next-gen Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. The difference here with the ASUS X670 Prime motherboard over the just-teased ASRock X670E Taichi is that we have PCIe 5.0 x16 for a graphics card... not a PCIe 5.0-based SSD. If you want super-mega-ultra-fast PCIe 5.0 SSD goodness, be careful which motherboard you buy.

ASRock teases X670 Taichi motherboard: ready for Ryzen 7000 series CPU
ASRock has officially teased -- and kinda revealed -- its next-gen X670 series motherboards.
The company teased its new AM5-based motherboards on its official YouTube channel, with the AM5-based series ready to rock and roll with AMD's next-gen Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. ASRock has teased the new X670 Taichi, and introduced the X670 Taichi Carrara: a new special edition board celebrating ASRock's huge 20th birthday.
ASRock has confirmed the new X670E chipset will power its new X670E Taichi motherboards, which delivers both next-gen PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 technologies. The company has also confirmed that it "went all out" on the VRM design of its new X670 Taichi motherboards, with a beasty 26 power stages.

MSI breaks world records: Core i9-12900KS @ 7.5GHz + MEG Z690 Unify-X
Intel's new tweaked Core i9-12900KS processor is now out in the wild, and multiple world records are being broken by MSI with its MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard.
Overclocker "SHIMIZU" from Japan has used the Intel Core i9-12900KS mixed with the MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard, pushing the CPU to a huge 7.5GHz -- or 7503MHz exactly -- with an x74 multiplier and 101.39MHz bus clock, while the voltage was pushed to close to 1.75V.
You're not going to be running at these clocks all day, or without exotic LN2 cooling, or with all of the cores enabled... SHIMIZU was only stable at those clocks with 2 active cores and SMT disabled. Still, the Core i9-12900KS is the fastest-clocked CPU available right now... and at 7.5GHz it's even faster (albeit without all the cores enabled, and SMT disabled). Still, a very, very impressive feat to see.

MSI WS WRX80 monster motherboard: ready for AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO
MSI has just announced its gigantic WS WRX80 motherboard, ready to rock and roll with up to 64 cores and 128 threads of CPU power with AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000WX series of processors.
MSI's new WS WRX80 motherboard is capable of taking both of AMD's Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000WX and Ryzen Threadripper PRO 5000WX series CPUs, with a gigantic and very powerful VRM that is placed on a 14-layer PCB. There are 11 VRM phases (all dedicated) and a huge 105A digital power SPS units.
You'll need dual 8-pin connectors and the 24-pin ATX connector, which are all signed on the right side of the motherboard. MSI's new WS WRX80 motherboard has a horizontally aligned SP3 socket that has 8 x DDR4 DIMM slots, 4 on either side of the CPU socket.

MSI's crazy MEG Z690 GODLIKE motherboard is here, costs $2099
MSI has officially unleashed its new MEG Z690 GODLIKE motherboard, which will cost you a pretty penny coming in at $2099.
The new MSI MEG Z690 GODLIKE motherboard is one of, if not the most badass Z690 motherboard ever -- it offers record-breaking OC abilities, beautiful RGB lighting, an LCD dashboard with a panel larger than the original iPhone -- and oh-so-much more.
It is covered in dark, deep, and full aluminum heat sink fashioned with a triangular grid pattern. The illuminating dragon nebula with tempered glass reveals the power with a column of faith and meteor RGB effect. The MEG Z690 GODLIKE symbolizes the endless power of the one universe, ready for every challenge.

BIOSTAR's next-gen Z790, B760 mobos leaked: Intel Raptor Lake ready
Intel might have just launched its new 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs and new flagship Z690 and mid-range B660 chipsets, but the next-gen 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPUs and new Z790 and Z760 chipsets will launch later this year.
BIOSTAR's upcoming next-gen Z790 and B760 motherboards have leaked, with the flagship BIOSTAR Z790 VALKYRIE motherboard taking the top spot for your new Raptor Lake CPU -- the flagship Intel Core i9-13900K processor -- all the way down to the mid-range BIOSTAR B760MH motherboard.
In total, we're looking at 12 new 700-series motherboards from BIOSTAR, with new listings entering the EEC with 3 x Z790 boards and 9 x B760 boards. We are to expect the new 700-series motherboards from not only BIOSTAR but from all AIB partners, to use the same LGA 1700 socket and have support for DDR5 + DDR4, as well as PCIe 5.0 connectivity.
